NICK OF TIME: HERE’S HIS BLAST THAT GAVE PHILS A 4-3 LEAD

By Sam Bush

Nick Castellanos made it a 4-3 game with this eighth-inning jack, his 6th of the year.

But closer Corey Knebel allowed the game-tying home run to Nick Plummer on the first pitch in the bottom of the ninth inning to make it a 4-4 game. And the Mets won it in the 10th.

“It’s extremely frustrating. It is what it is,” Phillies manager Joe Giardi said. “Castellanos gets that huge hit on an 0-2 pitch. Unfortunately, Corey got too much of the plate. The kid [Plummer] hit it out on the first pitch. It’s tough, when you are tied and you have to try to control them. It stinks.”
